Todd,

Some folks were starting to refer to you as the mystery reefer. They think your posts are just generated by some program Chris embedded in the website.

We have both raffle and door prize items at the meetings. Only charter members are qualified for the door prize raffles. Everyone can participate in the raffles. I think Scuba Steve posted earlier in this thread what is going to be raffled at this meeting as well as the ticket prices.

A huge thank you for letting us invade your home and providing the most excellant BBQ and cake. You two out did your selves as hosts. GaryP did another great job on explaining the different types of filteration methods. Thanks again PilotBell for flying me down to the meeting. That was a great experience and was wonderful getting to know you better.

Looking forward to this next weekend and doing the collection trip to Corpus.
